12:30 PM – Auction begins. (Only grand and reserve animals will be present at the sale.) It is your responsibility to be prepared to walk across the sale floor at your designated time. Failure to make your time will result in not being auctioned = NO MONEY.

Regardless of your animals placing, I recommend all families attend the auction for the experience. If at all possible, I like for everyone to stay and support all PISD students throughout the sale. Please sit as a group & cheer for all PISD students.

Thank you for helping make these weeks go as smoothly as possible. Please remember, I expect the highest level of sportsmanship from all individuals, at all times. Some students will make the sale, although some students may not be as fortunate, please always be a gracious participant and respectful of all teachers and students. I will not accept a poor sportsman, nor do I allow a boastful winner.

Should you need to communicate with me quickly during this week, text will be the best method. I will review all messages and respond, should it be necessary, at my earliest convenience.

Sunday January 10th

12:00pm- Arrive at Plano ISD Project Center to load all birds to be processed

Please bring $1.25 cash per bird to cover the cost of processing

12:30pm- We will leave for McKinney. I do not have an exact address today, but it is by Myers Park.

Once we arrive a man will teach us how process and use his equipment and we will work assembly line style to process all birds. It should take about 5 hours to complete all birds. You will take the birds home with you so please bring a large empty cooler or two and be sure you have space in your refrigerator and/or freezer.


If you have supplies that you are not going to use in the future and would like to donate to other students please leave them in the box in front of Mr. Graf's office.

Show Buddies

I am still working on this. I am short about 4 people for this please let me know if you have a sibling, friend, family member under the age of 18 that would be able to hold one of your birds at the show for you. As soon as I hear back from most of you I will send a list out of your buddies.
